For Nitro I am super happy with the OS55HZ (get for $240 via tower hobbies if you are a super saver club member) and an Outrage 55 pipe.

The truth is between OS 55 and YS 56, both are good engines.
Great inexpensive pipe - Outrage
Best (expensive) pipe Funtech B320

IMHO - I prefer the YS pressurized fuel system for a more consistent run from a full to empty tank. And the YS warranty (or rather lack of OS warranty). And the YS superior rear bearing.

I have run OS and YS 50's plus OS 55 and YS 56's.

Unless you are heavy heavy 3D I would strongly recomend the old hyper 50. The old hyper 50s are a cinch to tune and run like a top.

I don't know if it's the best, but the TT 53 redline has worked well for me. IT seemed, at least for me easy to tune.

I think that club has saved me well over $1000 this year!!

It's a complex, costly, glow powered anti-gravity machine!

0S 55 & Funtech rule. OS seems to start easier than the YS.

No mention of the novarossi 57. Plenty of power. Easy to tune if you read the Manuel but don't go by what you already know. Or don't touch the low end, don't let the servo bind as it will break the week throttle arm from the motor. great motor but I recommend the os 55 less headache.

Fortunately, the 600N is fairly light weight for a 50 class heli. It doesn't need a big bore 50. Although the extra power is nice to have, any 50 engine will work just fine power wise. I've had or still have all the engines mentioned so far plus the YS50. Each engine has it's pluses and minuses. I'll only offer my opinions on each as follows:

YS50 - reliable, good bearing life, easy to tune and stays that way, low on power compared to the others, hard to find NIB, pressurized fuel system has extra plumbing lines to attend to when fueling and defueling, no muffler exhaust gas pressure to contaminate fuel

OS50 - reliable, average bearing life, easy to tune but needs frequent adjustments as weather changes, powerful for its size, can still be found NIB for cheap, uses muffler pressure which contaminates fuel

TT Redline 53 - unreliable due to carb problems like gets stuck at WOT (some owners have swapped the stock carb out for an OS carb with great results), average bearing life, easy to tune and stays that way, excellent power for its size with right muffler like the black 3D Redline, uses muffler pressure which contaminates fuel

KME 60 (limited experience with this engine)- reliable, don't know about bearing life but predict less than average since it uses the same bearing as the OS and YS 50 class engines with more displacement, easy to tune with OS 60LH carb internal parts, good power but bulky and needs a large 90 size muffler, vibration levels somewhat high (believe the crankshaft is from OS50), machined billet crankcase, head and cylinder; lack of cooling fins on crankcase, unique and kind of old school, uses muffler pressure which contaminates fuel

NovaRossi Rex 57 - reliable, bearing life good but uses proprietary bearings that cost around $30 for rear alone, easy to tune and stays that way but is different than other engines like OS and YS (newer engines come with 3 needle carb which is even better for tuning), best power in the class when used with the NR H5 muffler (note that peak power/torque comes at 18,500 rpm instead of the 50 class typical 17,000 rpm, this requires high head speed or change of gearing to get all the power available from this engine), doesn't like to run at lower speeds due to crank turbo boost, uses muffler pressure which contaminates fuel

OS55 - reliable, less than average bearing life (same bearing size as OS50), easy to tune with 3 needle carb but needs some adjustments to high speed needle as weather changes, excellent power with fairly good fuel economy, very tolerant of muffler choice, uses muffler pressure which contaminates fuel

YS56 - reliable, average bearing life, easy to tune and stays that way with 3 needle carb and crank pressure with regulator for fuel delivery, excellent power with fairly good fuel economy, pressurized fuel system has extra plumbing lines to attend to when fueling and defueling, no muffler exhaust gas pressure to contaminate fuel

Anyone can feel free to disagree with me. As I said, these are my opinions based on my experiences only.

I have 2 Hyper 50's....always have a fresh motor ready. I have had pretty good luck with rear bearings so far. Went all summer with one. the hyper 50's make plenty of power for the 600. Inexpensive too.

OS 50
Glad I owned an OS 50. I was going to get a YS 56 but, since I'm new to Heli and building my 1st T-Rex 600N fully upgraded with silver blings. I believed I'm on the right track. Thanks to the nice adviced rexxigpilot had shared. I didn't need to buy a magazine to tell me that their engines performed like a million dollar machine when all I'm trying to accomplish is become a better heli pilot first then, hoping that someday I will be able to fly a great 3-D maneuvers with the that same OS 50 I have. Anyway, if you can afford to buy an expensive engine Boogie go for it. You deserve the best. But just remember what goes up will come down and hopefully not hard to break anything, even the the wallet $$$. Hope this make sense.
